Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

problem #2

Jun 102009

Ram 1500 Sport 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 132,000 miles


After it rained my truck wouldn't start. Would turn over till you drained the battery but would not start.

I replaced all the plugs,wires,distributor and rotor button and that fixed the problem to a tune of around $100.

problem #1

Ram 1500 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 80,000 miles

one day it starts the next it won't. I get power just will not turn over. When it does, I have to hold the key for about 1 min while it is started or it will quit. The whole time I have to pump the hell out of it & hold the gas down at times until it starts or not.
